Jhenah Telyndru


Jhenah Telyndru has always felt called to dance with joy in that liminal space which straddles the realms of history and myth, of individuality and collectivity, of the seen and the unseen. A creative mystic who loves science and values fact, Jhenah embraces the conscious co-creation of the future, while immersing herself in an impassioned study of the past. The path between, she believes, is where the mysteries are revealed and where true magic happens.

Jhenah holds an MA in Celtic Studies from the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, as well as a BA in archaeology. She is the founder of the Sisterhood of Avalon and serves as Academic Dean and lead instructor of the Avalonian Thealogical Seminary. Jhenah teaches four day retreat experiences around North America and the UK, and facilitates pilgrimages to sacred sites in the British Isles and Ireland through Mythic Seeker Tours. She is a frequent presenter and guest speaker at academic conferences, religious symposia, Women’s Spirituality gatherings, and Pagan festivals. A priestess in the Avalonian Tradition, Jhenah has been dedicated to the work of the Holy Isle for almost 30 years, and has been active in the Goddess Spirituality movement since 1986.

Jhenah’s published works include Avalon Within: A Sacred Journey of Myth, Mystery, and Inner Wisdom (Llewellyn, 2010), The Avalonian Oracle: Spiritual Wisdom from the Holy Isle (Schiffer, 2016), Rhiannon: Divine Queen of the Celtic Britons (Moon Books, 2018), The Mythic Moons of Avalon: Lunar and Herbal Wisdom From the Island of Healing (Llewellyn, 2019), and the forthcoming Pagan Portals: Blodeuwedd (Moon Books, 2020). Her writing has been featured in fiction and non-fiction anthologies; periodicals, including PanGaia, SageWoman, The Beltane Papers, Circle Magazine, and The Tor Stone; as well as various datebooks and annuals.

In addition to her formal studies, Jhenah has delved into hermetic science, qabalistic philosophy, transpersonal astrology, archetypal tarot, and depth psychology in an ongoing quest to further her understanding of the Universe as it manifests within and without.

Jhenah welcomes your feedback about any of the works presented in these pages, as well as any inquiries regarding her writings, recordings, workshops and presentations.
